A&E’s ‘Longmire’ Renewed for Season 2

Longmire Season 2
A&E

It’s been a good couple of days to be on cable.  Earlier today, both TNT’s ‘Dallas‘ reboot and ‘Rizzoli & Isles were renewed for additional seasons, as well did last night’s ‘Anger Management‘ make for FX’s highest ratings yet, bringing up ‘Louie‘ and ‘Wilfred‘ in the process.  A&E moves further into the realm of original programming as well, now that original drama ‘Longmire‘ will return for a second season.

TVLine reports that A&E’s Craig Johnson novel-adapted series ‘Longmire’ will saddle up for a second season, set to debut in 2013.  At 4.1 million viewers, ‘Longmire’ provided A&E’s most-watched scripted series debut of all time and the highest-rated new cable scripted drama of 2012 among total viewers and adults 25-54.

Having only aired four episodes to date, and with its first season finale scheduled for August 5, ‘Longmire’ follows Robert Taylor as the titular character and Wyoming sheriff, along with ‘Battlestar Galactica‘ alum Katee Sackhoff (whom we had a chance to speak to recently) as his deputy, Victoria ‘Vic’ Moretti. ‘Smallville’ star Cassidy Freeman plays Longmire’s daughter Cady, and Lou Diamond Phillips as Sheriff Longmire’s ally Henry Standing Bear.

Over the course of the first four episode, ‘Longmire’ has averaged 3.9 million total viewers and 5.3 million viewers with Live +7 data for the first 2 weeks.  Not bad, for a Wyoming Sheriff.

What say you?  Was ‘Longmire’ worthy of a second season, or as dusty as the Wyoming landscape?  Sound off with your take in the comments below!
